Spirituality: “Every Beggar is Christ Carrying His Cross” By St. Alberto Hurtado, S.J.

I hold that every poor man, every vagrant, every beggar is Christ carrying his cross. And as Christ, we must love and help him. We must treat him as a brother, a human being like ourselves. If we were to start a campaign of love for the poor and the homeless, we would, in a short time, do away with depressing scenes of begging, children sleeping in doorways, and women with babies in their arms fainting in our streets.
